Laser surgery to remove fat

Common Questions and Answers about Laser surgery to remove fat


Avatar n tn To help your gallbladder and to hopefully prevent surgery (if possible), one needs to cut fat as much as possible from their diet, also eating smaller meals more frequently throughout the day will help. Should you be absolutely craving a particular fatty food and just HAVE to have it, maybe you could eat it on an empty stomach and only a small amount of the fatty food.
Avatar n tn Lack of blood flow causes necrosis of the bone and the only way to cure it would be to remove the area with bone curettage which I am not sure is done at this time. Possibly taking out all the bone and replacing it with an artificial might work but the area involved is very sensitive as there are nerve endings everywhere. I am still researching a way to solve this right now. I have bone snaps all over which is probably an indication of cavitations of the bones.
Avatar f tn Three months ago today I had mid face, lower face, brow lift, and lower cosmetic eye surgery to remove a little fat and skin. The mid facelift and brow lift was done with endotines which I can still feel in cheeks and hairline. My problem has been with under eye blesphaplasty. I have a hard lump under left eye which appeared a few weeks ago. I massage daily but has not helped. The irony is immediately after the surgery, my right under eye area was the problem.
Avatar n tn What they did was, they went in and peeled her skin back from under her arms to about half way down her side. They scrapped the underside of the skin to totally remove all the sweat glans and hair follicles. The surgery took well over a month to recover from. They had to place drainage tubes under her arms that had to be emptied every few hours as well as bandages that needed to be changed often.
233488 tn?1310696703 It does refer to surgery to remove pinguecula, thick tenon fascia or fat from the eye surface just to improve cosmetic appearance. Technically this is called "regional conjunctivectomy with or without post operative injection of mitomycin and/or bevacizumab". A recent report (2013) in the American Journal of Ophthalmology of 557 people having this surgery found 70% post operative complications of which 34% were severe.

Avatar n tn I had surgery (laproscopic) on 12/28 to remove both ovaries and the 2 cm cysts on them. The path report finally came back a couple of days ago and the tumors turned out to be benign...thank God! My surgery was outpatient....I was home the evening of surgery. I had previously found that morphine doesn't touch pain for me and maybe this is why they did an epidural/spinal block. I only took pain pills for 24 hours after getting home.
Avatar n tn I had spinal fusion on my L5 5 weeks ago, and i am now hurting now more then i ever did before surgery. My Doc said he had the surgery and was back to work in 2 weeks. At 2weeks for me i was hurting so bad i thought i had messed up my fusion. So i went to see my my doc and had an xray and was told it was fine. He gave me a RX and said it was my last one. So i have had nothing for pain since 3 weeks after surgery.
Avatar f tn I regret having my surgery - I insisted with my surgeon that I wanted the gallstones to be treated with laser but he said that is not done anymore. I really didn't want the surgery but I had no choice as my gallbladder had become infected and required hospital stays.
Avatar n tn His team has also had a lot of success with endoscopic and laser surgery. You can send all of your stuff to him for evaluation before having to make the trip. I've seen some spectacular cases he's operated on. One guy had no discs in his neck, just one long rod! You only have one neck and that connects to your back which makes up your whole spine..... make the right decision when it comes to who you let cut it open. Another great site is GPN, Global Patient Network.
Avatar m tn I want to ablate the area of your heart which is transmitting pain, to remove your discomfort, I will use a laser and kill those cells". I sat in total silence just starring at him, thinking I was dreaming. So I asked the obvious question "how on Earth will I know if I am damaging my heart with no feelings of angina? surely I can severely damage it, even end up in heart failure?".
Avatar n tn 1. check your blood cholesterol. Its often high. Sometimes if you get blood fats (lipids) really low the skin xanthalasma get better. Removal involves "invasive" surgery.
Avatar f tn The only treatment is removal by surgery with/without skin grafting (depending on the size of the lesion) or use of laser (CO2 Laser).I sincerely suggest you to consult a dermatologist/cosmetologist and discuss these treatment options with him. I hope that helps. Please do keep me posted on how your mother is doing or if you have any additional doubts.Warm regards.
Avatar n tn my problem is i use to weight about 225 pounds and i managed to lose the weight, and i have alot of skin with a thin layer of fat under it, about 1/2 inch to an 1 inch, is there a way to lose fat fat without having to buy expensive supplements, and after i lose this extra fat what about the extra skin i still have. is there a way to lose it or tighten it without paying tons of cash?
Avatar n tn While Smartlipo damages fat cells, it always requires standard liposuction to remove the damaged fat as well as any additonal fat. If you are not satisfied with the results of the procedure, have a frank discussion with your surgeon in several months to determine if additional surgery will be required to improve your situation.
Avatar n tn The ultrapulsed carbon dioxide laser and erbium YAG laser are most frequently used in laser resurfacing. Because the skin is injured and tissue exposed as an effect wound care and infection prevention is important. Non-ablative lasers, on the other hand, trigger changes within the dermis without injuring the epidermis. Smoothbeam targets and heats the sebaceous gland, helping reduce sebum and acne formation. Another option is the yellow pulse dye laser.
Avatar f tn The only treatment is removal by surgery with/without skin grafting (depending on the size of the lesion) or use of laser (CO2 Laser). It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
Avatar f tn I honestly thought I was the only one because I had throat surgery when I was a baby (born with a deviated septum and double uvula) and I believed that something must have gone wrong during surgery and my ability to burp was damaged. It's actually quite amazing to find that I'm not alone. haha! Anyway, I used to suffer tremendously....the gurgles were aggravating, but after that stage it would turn to terribly painful hiccups. For years I treated it with green olives. HAHA...
Avatar m tn thanks for the feedback, i'm a little puzzled about something due to the surgery part, you might have an answer. well, i've read that surgery is to remove the fat in the under eyes but does it also remove the dark circles or the darkness will remain there after the fat is removed?
Avatar n tn You can't remove these without some form of surgery, which I emphatically do not recommend, because there's no way to remove them without scarring, and besides, they would just come back. You will, I think, need to come to terms with your having these, as many men do, and ignore them, because they have no significance. It isn't worth it, in my opinion, for you to spend any money, much or little, in a futile attempt to do what cannot and doesn't need to be done. Best. Dr.
Avatar m tn I had reconstructive surgery for my left eye,which my doctor put a implant under the eye,the implant is to push the eye out,but not enough to match my right eye,my doctor said he can't push the eye out more because its to much pressure and can damage my eye vision permanently.Right now i see a shadow round spot on top of my left eye cause of the implant pressure.My question is can it be corrected,what do you recommend?
Avatar f tn such a shame that plastic surgeon can turn man in to woman and vice verse but can not remove chicken pox scars. shame on surgery. my daugter spend thousand doing microderma laser message radio frequency with top esthetic surgeon and dermatologist but all say one thing that they can not do anything fro chicken pox scars and that is after charging thousands of pound. any one know why ?
Avatar n tn Don't be scared, just try not to eat anything with fat in it until your surgery. Without fat there is nothing to make the stones. hope that helped:) Good Luck!
Avatar m tn Just completed the HIDA scan and came in at a low 11% functionality. Doctor recommended surgery to remove gallbladder. I only weigh 135 lbs - female, 5'3. I eat very healthy, always avoid fried foods and fast foods. I try to eat organic but do love meat. My question is whether or not removal of the gallbladder for folks with LAZY GALLBLADDER has worked? (All sources say that people with gallstones need surgery, but this is different from a "Lazy Gallbladder.
Avatar n tn I had laser surgery a few times in 1997. In 2001 I got micro-droplet silicone inject. by Dr. Orientreich in New York (who invented it I believe), but I only did it once, so I wasn't alot of silicone(> 1 cc). Now for my question...Over the past 2-3 years I have noticed a small area near my nose on my cheek that is slightly raised outwards (maybe 3/4 in in length and 1/8 in.
Avatar f tn Discovered in Germany. Polymethylmethacrylate micro beads. Spreads out below dermis in fat. Is permanent and hard to remove if nodules form Cost $400 per injection site. Allergy testing not known. Will not ever be approved in US.
Avatar n tn However it seem incongruous that you are frightened about a minor biopsy around the previous breast surgery, and yet are willing to undergo a blind laser procedure around an area with an unknown source of persistent pain in your abdomen. It seems to me that this should be resolved before undergoing additional elective surgery there.
162948 tn?1205256292 When i had sex with my husband on the Friday and Saturday before removal it hurt him and me so thats why i went to get it checked and they had to remove it. So The IUD is good for some people and bad for others. My opinion.
Avatar n tn I heard people talking about how laser surgery can help remove them, and I was wondering how much it costs. I don't think Ican go through life trying to hide my body under long pants and shirts, but I am to embarrassed to tell my mom and father.
